C&C Red Alert 2

I recently decided to try installing Command & Conquer Red Alert 2 Yuri's Revenge from an old iso file I had floating around my hard drive. I first mounted the iso and copied the files from it into a folder. I then used Wine to install. Everything went according to plan until I went to run the game. When I tried running Red Alert 2 (original) an error message popped up: Error - Unable to set the video mode.
When I tried running Yuri's Revenge the same thing happened with one small exception, the first couple of times I tried the Yuri's Revenge splash screen popped up before showing the error message. However the splash screen no longer pops up.

Any suggestions?
